The Flash and suspension of disbelief

Lately, I’ve gotten hooked on The Flash, because apparently I just want to spend my life watching CW superhero shows, why not.

Dude can run really fast? I’m in.

And I will buy just about anything it sells.

You can run fast enough to go back through time? Sure!

Travel through time AND look like Tom Cavanagh? COOL.

Also, let’s just have a Jesse L. Martin appreciation moment, shall we?

People can fuse together and become a superhero who shoots fire? I’m down with that!

You can visit the multiverse! Oh, hell, yes, of course you can!

Through one of these schnazzy glowing portals, even!

But I just cannot believe that anyone — ANYONE — would offer Iris West a job at a newspaper after reading her terrible blog. THAT WOULD NOT HAPPEN THIS SHOW IS SO FAKE.

Seriously, you do not go from inexperienced barista to investigative reporter in two episodes. I DON’T BELIEVE THIS FOR A MOMENT, SHOW.
